In short: Overall, a very enjoyable race! In full: A nice route, pretty and undulating, made it interesting. Good to come back through the village and good support. Portaloos outside the church were the best I have ever seen at a race. Nice t-shirts. Only downside: 1. When the start gun went there were non runners still on the road. Start could be better organised. 2. As others have already commented, congestion at the end for handing chips back and getting t-shirts.
In short: Excellent race - great atmosphere and scenery In full: A great 10km in the picturesque essex countryside. Good mix of fun runners and club runners with great crowd support along the way. Very well organised. Date of review: May 26, 2009
In short: Very good overall - as usual ! In full: Only improvement would be to the chip return and t-shirt pick up area. Got a bit congested and could be improved by keeping it clear / putting in one way barriers up to this point Date of review: May 26, 2009
In short: Great race.... In full: Great race with some great scenery. Possible PB potential but a few hills chucked in for good luck - I achieved a PB by 6 mins but not sure I could do it again! Great atmosphere through the village with a good crowd and very good organisation.
My only improvement would be to have bottled water rather than cups at the water stops... but brilliant otherwise. Date of review: May 26, 2009
In short: 3rd year, will be back again In full: After doing this for two years with MISERABLE weather, it was lovely to take part in 2009 with perfect race weather & then glorious sunshine to enjoy the fate & hog roast. Thanks to the organised and marshals for another great event. Only comment I would have is that the start felt a little disorganised. A loud speaker/PA to announce the start before the horn would have helped. Other than that a great day :-) Date of review: May 26, 2009
